Trend Report: Paris Fashion Week | Spring 2017

Posted on October 5, 2016 by Jen Lett

This week is the last for Fall Fashion Week, and we saw a few favorites and new head-turners as the event comes to a close! Trendy jackets and flowing garments were prime pieces of the show for Paris designers, and we had to share them here!

Kimono-style Jackets

With loose sleeves and a cinched waist, kimono-style jackets have been popping up in plenty of designers’ lines. Kimono collars are perfect for when you want to make your neck look long and elegant, and the patterns and fabrics often used to make these types of jackets are never less than stunning.

From smooth satins to glimmering prints, kimono jackets are a wonderful addition to any ensemble or wardrobe.

Wide Sleeves

Leather Jackets

Straight-cut, embellished, or studded, leathers were a familiar and glamorous appearance for the show. Many leather fashions are still sporting motorcycle and bomber jackets, so if you haven’t grabbed one for yourself yet, there’s still time!

Flowing Skirts

Big, flowing skirts popped up in the beginning of the season, and they’re still going pretty strong. Now being paired with fitted tops like these, they lean more to the side of sophisticated than comfy like their early season counterparts.
